24/7 pharmacy/medical centres

Taitusi Sokiveta,

Phoenix Arizona, USA

We need emergency medical centres to be open all night to tend to the sick people of Fiji.

Also pharmacy centres need to be open all night.

For example, in little towns, villages or remote areas, a little store can carry all medicines needed.

In case of an emergency, for example, one night I ran out of high blood pressure pills.

It was around 1am.

I went to a Phoenix, Arizona emergency room, got a doctor to write me my high blood pressure prescription pill, went to Walgreens 24-hour pharmacy, supermarket which opens all night and got me my blood pressure pills.

When I get sick in the middle of the night or day I can go to any emergency room in Phoenix for treatment cause they are open all night.

Also, if I am not sure if it’s OK to take both medicines together, I can call the in-patient pharmacy in any hospital in Arizona and talk to a pharmacist anytime of the night and the pharmacist can correct me.

If you have a smartphone or any phone that has internet connection or a computer, you can help the people of Fiji who need medical attention.

At night you can call any hospital in America or any pharmacist or any emergency centre and ask them any emergency medical question and they can help you because they are open 24 hours a day.

Then you can find an open pharmacy that carries the medicine prescribed by the American Medical Emergency Room doctors.

Communication long distance can help with medical problems. We have the technology now that can help; so use it.

Astronauts in outer space communicate with Americans on the ground level every day.

Opening emergency medical centres all night will help our sick people of Fiji.

When you buy a recharge card it expires on a certain date whether there is still data balance available or not.

When I buy, it becomes my property. But in this case the company terminates your remaining data on expiration date.

This happened because the Government allowed it in the contract provisions.

The Government should disallow this kind of contract provisions.

First of all, the Government must protect the consumers, not the capitalist.
